The Facility form is color coded, with green sections denoting data to be submitted by all participants and gold sections denoting data for Gold Level participants. If your facility participates at the Gold Level then at least one field shown in gold must be entered.
The Facility form must be completed upon initial registration and at the beginning of each subsequent calendar year.
A printable version of the Facility form is available for your workflow processes and should not be submitted to the ACR.
